There's a line around 500 that starts:

	"The kernel powerpc generic code does..."

Perhaps the powerpc reference should be dropped there?

Also, there are several mentions of "real Open Firmware", which are

There is a section that talks about ranges that starts with:

	"For a new 64-bit powerpc board, I...".

Section III 5) has all kinds of powerpc specific stuff.  CHRP,
pSeries, PAPR in the root node.  The references to Apple machines for
